Posted 5mo ago

Who We Are

OtherSide Entertainment is an independent game studio with remote staff throughout North America. Our mission is to create deeply immersive games that draw players into richly imagined worlds; games that empower players to choose their own play-style, making their experience unique and personal; games that encourage players to team up with their friends and weave their own shared narrative; the kind of games that are powered by our players’ vision as much as our own. Together, we aim to evolve the “player-authored” tradition of Ultima Underworld, System Shock, Thief, and Deus Ex – all games developed by the company’s founders, Paul Neurath and Warren Spector.

 

The Opportunity

We’re hiring a Sr. UI & UX Designer to spearhead the development of UI visuals and UX flow on a new, open-world sandbox game from the mind of Warren Spector, working closely with our design, art, and engineering teams to identify needs and define best practices for our UI & UX goals. The successful candidate will approach each problem with strong design skills, a flair for visuals, and consideration for the player’s experience in the way they approach the interface.

Job Responsibilities

  • Work within Unreal Engine to develop and create UI elements and visuals for menus, HUD, character progression, and more using Unreal Motion Graphics (UMG), materials, and Sequencer.
  • Define UX deliverables by clearly outlining usability and flow through documents, concepts, layouts, and visual mock-ups.
  • Gather feedback for your features and develop solutions to problems identified by the team.
  • Champion best practices regarding UI visuals, UX flow, file organization, asset standards, and modularity of UI components.
  • Guide and provide feedback on UI system architecture.
  • Design and create UI assets, for prototype as well as final implementation.

Requirements

  • Minimum of 5 years of:
    • Designing, documenting, and presenting UX treatments to a professional team.
    • Designing and creating UI deliverables to support the UX.
    • Implementing UI in Unreal using Unreal Motion Graphics, Sequencer, and script.
    • Proficient use of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and other graphic art suites
    • Advocating for UX best practices using current industry standards.
  • Drive and passion for working on complex problems with a team of dedicated professionals.
  • The ability to take the reins and drive the design, implementation, debugging, and polishing of the game’s UI/UX treatment.
  • Shipped title(s) in Unreal Engine.
  • Passion for PC and console games.

Key Bonus Experience

  • Motion graphics and animation proficiency.
